Today is a big day in Medfield. 

In the morning, we'll celebrate a light snowfall; in the afternoon, we'll celebrate with the annual MEMO Holiday Parade; and, in the evening, we'll celebrate girls' differences and disabilities with the first ever Massachusetts Miss Amazing Pageant created by Medfield teen Andrea Nevins. 

As of press time, there was a light dusting on the roads and rooftops with a weather prediction of more to come

You can spend the morning and/or early afternoon at the Dwight-Derby House Holiday Shoppe from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. where you will find:
  • Handcrafted jewelry by Susan Gerow and Cheryl O’Malley
  • Ribbon yarn scarfs and shawls by Susan McCarthy
  • Artistic photography by Colleen Sullivan
  • and More
At 1 p.m., the annual MEMO Holiday Parade will step off from the middle and high schools and will feature Santa at the end.  
  • The parade will start at the high school/middle school and wind its way up Pleasant Street to Route 109 and down Park Street. Be there to see the Medfield Girl Scout troops of all ages march in their costumes. The parade will feature the Medfield Fire Department along with the Medfield High School Marching Band. And best of all – guess who is at the end of the parade!
At 6 p.m., Blake Middle School will be the site of the first-ever Massachusetts Miss Amazing Pageant.
  • The event was organized by Andrea Nevins, 16, of Medfield to celebrate the abilities of girls and women with disabilities for girls ages 5 to 35. Tickets are available for $10 eachHERE or at the door. 
Wow! Whatever you do, Medfield, have a great weekend!
